“You don’t test a gentle person the way that you don’t steep tea for too long. Submerge me and I will imbue, and what was sweet will be bitter. I will be strong on your tongue and unpleasant to the taste, and you’ll regret drowning me in your guile.
My gentleness is not for your taking.”

“While it’s never wonderful to see a company so incredibly unbalanced, the demographic data provide greater transparency behind who makes critical decisions about the product, features, and policies of a vital tool for digital feminism. These numbers help us to establish an understanding of where we are now so we can aim further tomorrow. And when we see that nearly 80 percent of leadership at Twitter is men, it’s hard not to think about how that impacts features like protecting users from online harassment and online threats. This difference of experience compels feminists like those from Take Back The Tech to call on social media companies (including Twitter) to be more responsive to online harassment against women. Chances are that folks who have never encountered online sexist vitriol might not be the best people to create effective policies against it.”

One of my dearest friends was found on the side of the road, unconscious and bloody. She was wearing this cosplay on the day it happened. She was last seen with friends when she ran off after a disagreement. Please, please, please, if you have ANY information or saw her anywhere, contact her mother. The full information is down below. This isn’t okay and it’s sickening to know that this happened at a place people truly can enjoy themselves. Please spread the word.
”I just received a call from the San Diego Police Department and my daughter Emily Weyer aka Milly Makara was found on the side of the road covered in blood with no ID unconscious. They are unsure what happened to her. My husband is on his way to the police station and then the hospital. If you have any information on what happened to her please send me a facebook message or call me at 951 229 3394. Thank you in advance”. -JILL WEYER

do you think like 600 years ago book nerds got real mad when the printing press was invented because filthy casuals could get books without having to copy them out themselves
Actually yes they did
and there were certain ancient Greeks who were angry when writing was invented, because it meant that literature was more accessible to the filthy casual masses
true shit, people
a lot of activism seems very, for want of a better word, hurried. things are put across in as dramatic and emotional terms as possible and, while i understand that a lot of these issues are emotional ones, if you aren’t directly affected by something there actually isn’t any need to…
my partner tried to call me a sweetheart the other day but he misspelled it and I read it as “sweetbeard” and then I decided that this is what dwarf couples call each other
so, naturally, here are two dwarves on a date
